Create Talking Animations With These Free iPad Apps - iPad Apps for School | Methods and tools to promote learning | Scoop.it
Making animated movies is one of my favorite video creation projects for elementary school students. Students love hearing their voices bringing to life an animated character on the screen. You can have students create animations to tell stories from their own lives or to animate short stories that they have written in your classroom. The following three free iPad apps enable elementary school students to create talking animated movies.

Using Augmented Reality in schools

Using Augmented Reality in schools | Methods and tools to promote learning | Scoop.it

Essentially, Augmented Reality is hidden content, most commonly hidden behind marker images, that can be included in printed and film media, as long as the marker is displayed for a suitable length of time, in a steady position for an application (on a device such as a tablet or smartphone, by means of a camera) to identify and analyse it.

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | Methods and tools to promote learning | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.

Many highlights but especially this post distinguishes between Lave & Wenger’s communities of practiceand Brown & Campione’s communities of learners, explaining that communities of practice emerge naturally because the community members have a common interest, whereas communities of learners are designed by instructors to put students in situations where they will engage in active and distributed learning. --featuring the research of Filitsa Dingyloudi

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.
